a 12-gauge shotgun and have a good defensive effect. and there's the element of surprise. you've got police all over the place in watertown, so i don't really think that this is applicable. i think there are people that want to make this argument, but 12-gauge shotgun, there are many weapons, 2,000-plus weapons that are available to people for choice without an assault weapon. >> we're running out of time. so i'm not going to give you a chance to answer that question, congressman king. i'll give you a chance to answer the other question. this has also spilled into the debate over immigration reform. some conservatives like charles grassley, senator from iowa, are saying, before we reform the system, we ought to focus more on who we let into this country. your response? >> first of all, i don't think it should have a severe impact on the immigration debate. i do think it should focus on whether or not it should be refined, and if people are coming from a country which has terrorist background, if there's a strong terrorist element in that country, there should be extra vetting for peo
the daily beast that the drone program will move from the cia to the defense department. that could increase accountability and transparency. the president also responded by saying this at the state of the union. >> i will continue to engage congress to ensure not only that our targeting, detention and prosecution of terrorists remains consistent with our laws and system of checks and balances. but that our efforts are even more transparent to the american people and to the world. >> but it looks like that effort is not getting very far. the administration refused to even send a witness to testify and answer questions at today's hearings. the chair of the hearing told us the legal and policy questions surrounded targeted killings require a public debate. once again, it looks like a debate the white house would rather skip. joining us now to discuss the government's obligation to defend the nation and the constitution is dan clydeman who has been all over the story and wrote a definitive account of the evolving detention policies. kill or capture, the war on terr terror. and chief foreign cor

for the cia as a former deputy assistant secretary of defense. how critical is it that the 90 year-old brother of tamerlan tsarnaev be caught alive? >> well, is important. there is still some months that we don't know about this. is there a firm international connection? with a self radicalized? what motivated them? are there more potential terrorist attacks in the future? other part of the sleeper so? is the picture gets more clear new information makes a blurry, and there is just so much that we need to know. getting a hold of him and the freaking get informational tell us a lot. dagen: of course we mentioned the city has been on virtual lock down the public transition down. all of your major ones. so closed for today. amtrak service was closed down. people told by the governor of the state to stay indoors. boston and the surrounding areas. how critical is that? how critical is it that for these authorities to be a will to do their job? >> well, first of all, is public safety, of course. there are armed law enforcement officers, federal, state, local, out there trying to get this guy. anothe
